From Doughnuts And Scones To Homemade Cookie Butter Coconut Oil Is The Secret Weapon In So Many Of Our Favorite Dessert Recipes
At a recent stop on my book tour, someone asked if I had any “pet” ingredients that the average baker may not have on hand. In the heat of the moment, all I could think of was malted milk powder, what I call the “umami bomb” of dessert. As handy as malted milk powder can be when it comes to layering a toasty/malty flavor into desserts, the secret workhorse of my kitchen is undoubtedly coconut oil.
Like any oil, it’s a pure fat, but what sets coconut oil apart is that it’s solid but creamy at room temperature . That means it behaves more like butter or shortening in baked goods, creaming up light and fluffy when beaten with sugar.
Coconut oil melts quickly on the tongue due to a melting point well below body temperature, so it doesn’t feel greasy like shortening or cold butter. Refined coconut oils like LouAna or Nutiva are absolutely neutral, with no taste or aroma whatsoever, while virgin coconut oil can have flavor that ranges from mild to intense depending on the brand .
These properties allow coconut oil to wear a number of hats in the kitchen, functioning like shortening in snickerdoodles, like fry oil with doughnuts, like butter in scones, like liquid oil in banana bread. While this is by no means a complete list of desserts where coconut oil comes in handy, these recipes go a long way in demonstrating the scope of its utility.

Can A Person With Diabetes Eat Sweets
Yes, but like everyone else, sweets should be kept to a minimum. It is a myth that people with diabetes should never eat sugar. The trick is to balance sugar with protein, fat, and fiber to slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, and to track your overall carbohydrate intake so you stick within your recommended diet plan.
Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings
You might not think of apples when you buy crescent rolls at the store, but the versatile pastry can do just about anything!

Why You Should Be Baking With Essential Oils
Yes, building up your collection of essential oils is very expensive, but over time, you’ll probably find that the amount of time and money you’re saving is well worth it.For starters, you don’t need to use much essential oil to get the same amount of flavor. One to two drops of cinnamon essential oil will make your baked goods burst with flavor! This makes the whole baking process easier.Essential oils will also last pretty much forever! While your herbs and spices will shrivel up and turn brown over time, as long as your essential oils are stored properly. There’s nothing worse than reading for your fresh herbs and spices, only to realize that it’s old and has lost its beautiful flavor. With essential oils, you don’t have to worry about that!Lastly cooking and baking with essential oils will give you most of the same benefits as using them for aromatherapy. While the baking process can change the chemical make up of your oils,the less time they spend exposed to heat, the more you can reap the benefits of these magical liquids, while also enjoying your favorite desserts… like this recipe for that use lime essential oil!

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cookies
In this recipe, coconut oil stands in for 50% of the butter in what amounts to a basic sugar cookie dough. That cuts back on the toasty brown butter notes that cookies develop as they bake, giving the finished product a clean vanilla flavor that contrasts beautifully with the bold, bitter flavor of crumbled Oreos for a cookies and cream-themed cookie.

Why Are My Chocolate Chip Cookies Flat
Be sure your butter is at a cool room temperature before beating with your sugar. It shouldnt be greasy or overly soft, otherwise itll melt and spread the cookies too much.
The warmer your cookie dough is when it enters the oven, the thinner and flatter your cookies will be. To prevent flat cookies, try freezing your balls of cookie dough while your oven preheats. Learn more about how to bake THICK cookies here.
Better yet, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 to 48 hours. This marination process will transform your cookies by making them thicker, chewier, and more flavorful!

One Of The Best Low Carb Desserts For Any Occasion
Despite the conflict between the name and the fact that I had family coming for New Years, I made this sex in a pan dessert for the celebration. I wanted something that looked cool, tasted extra rich, and it had to be something I wouldnt make every day.
Fortunately, even with multiple steps, it turned out to be a lot easier than it looks! And, the rave reviews were worth the effort.
Ill admit, I couldnt bring myself to tell my family what this thing was called. And they did all ask, because it doesnt look like any other dessert people have seen before. I just said its chocolate layer dessert. Feel free to do the same if youre in the same boat!
You may be wondering why Im sharing this chocolate layer dessert recipe now, toward the end of January. Isnt this month supposed to be all about healthy eating for many people? Well, yes. But like I said, this low carb dessert is definitely healthier than traditional sex in a pan.
The other reason is, Valentines Day is coming up! What better time than that to make this sugar-free sex in a pan dessert? Its special, its chocolate, and you wont have to come up with an alternate name like I did.
